Ladies Take Note! What Guys DON’T Want For Valentine’s

share on:

Just in time for Valentine with the atmosphere getting tensed, the thoughts of loving and sharing has filled our minds and believe you me I always worry over what to get Bae every year.

The good thing this year is that I have spoken to the ‘chairman’ and some other members of the reasonable ‘Boyfriends Association’ and I have discovered that there are certain items they do not want to get for Valentine’s.

Apparently every other Valentine, some ladies give out gifts with the mindset “It’s the thought that counts” without knowing that these gift items somehow weren’t appreciated because 21st century guys actually do not believe in that saying. Nowadays, guys want to be able to brag about their gifts too, social media has even made everything worse because it ensures everyone wants to post up pictures of what they got for Valentine’s.

This year there should be a BIG difference and that’s why I’m here to help with some of those items guys don’t want to get as Valentine’s gift.

BYC Boxers and Singlet

BYC1201.1__42425.1405435743.1280.1280

Why most ladies think that BYC singlets and boxers are a perfect Valentine’s gift still remains a mystery. I know ladies want to cater to their Men’s needs especially their underwear but please there are a thousand other underwear brands like Calvin Klein, Banana Republic, Hanes, H&M etc to pick from. Preferably ladies, I suggest you leave the guys to sort out their underwear game.

Valentine Cards

Don’t get me wrong, I love the very sweet messages on some valentine cards but sadly enough a text message or BBM message might create same effect hence rendering the card useless. Ladies, you want to know the truth? Most guys do not even open the cards when they get them so there is really no reason to include a card in your gift bag this year.

212 Perfume and Cool Water Perfume

coolll

This has remained a Nigeria girl thing but the guys want it to go away. Please ladies, there are so many other perfume and body spray brands other than Cool Water and 212. By the way, some guys are of the opinion that giving out a body spray implies they have body odor and you don’t want to leave such impact so just stay away from such gift items.

Fruit Cake

Not every guy hates fruit cake but most guys definitely do not want to get that as a gift on Valentine’s Day. My boss once said if he gets fruit cake, it would end up with his gate man. Now, imagine where that fruit cake you gift your boyfriend on Val’s day might end up? Maybe the trash can or something.

Just in case you are wondering at this point what to get for your boyfriend this Valentine’s, there are a couple of things every (real) man would appreciate. Check them out below;

A bottle (or maybe two) of some really good Italian wine

Ladies, you can cop a bottle of some quality Italian wine and drink over a movie date at the boo’s place. Trust me on this one, he sure would appreciate.

Asos wide brim fedora hat

This is a perfect gift for the fashionable man because it takes only a stylish man to truly appreciate this hat.

Condom Dispenser 

30

Yes you read right. A condom dispenser is one of the perfect gift for all safe-sex lovers. The good thing is that this gift is of help to both of you because you know when you are running out of condoms and refill.

As they say, ‘every Mallam with him kettle’. Following our discourse here, off I go to get Bae the Condom dispenser. Thank me later, ladies.

  1. Jules is at it again. I really think ladies should invest in getting their boo pleasant gifts. Its refreshing when you see your man really blushing after a gift, trust me, the feeling is priceless!
    Other ideas? a nice wrist watch always works magic*winks*

  2. lol @ condom dispenser. That BYC got me cracking.
    Anyways, naija ladies should try and do something different this time. Dem guys are really complaining.

  3. Wow…she sounds like the Linda I know. Lol. Anyways, that’s a nice one. I will love wristwatch and other cool nice things too.

  4. heheheehehehe #truetalk my sister# i can imagine an evening with bae on Val’s day, having dinner and sipping from that wine. Now that’s the good thing about the gift, you get to drink from it too……. lol

  5. Ladies also take note that going on a romantic getaway the weekend before (or after) valentines could be a good idea. This gets them in a relaxed mood and puts less pressure on ladies….my opinion….

  6. I can relate to the BYC ish, my ex kept gifting me that silly thing and when we broke up I sent a box of it back to her. Condom dispenser…… Hmmnnn

  7. ok, very wonderful article first of all, welldone juliet. now, i totally agree with the #whatguysdontwant. they are all cliche, from d byc boxers to 212 to the cake, lol. i agree that a bottle or two of (very fine) wine would do. a hat is something new bu says:
